          I'm thinking of visiting NZ with family next year. Obviously Manakau features high on our list because of the v high ranking. However, even one terrible review provides an issue for us. Firstly a query for the reviewer is this review based entirely on your financial loss as a result of your own incompetence at not taking out Travel Insurance or do you actually know something all the other reviewers don't? Secondly, to other reviewers, do you consider this terrible review has blanket validity across all the categories and if not, was there any part of the offering provided by Manakau which could have prompted any disquiet particularly in regard to any financial matters.
